Benchmarks: File Copy Test
First up we have the single 6GB file copy test which uses a large compressed file. The Samsung 830 Series 512GB amazed with an average throughput of 210.3MB/s making it 31% faster than the OCZ Vertex 3 Max IOPS 240GB. The drive was also 44% faster than the Crucial m4 256GB.
The program copy test is comprised of many small non-compressed files (6104 files totaling 2.75GB). It appears that smaller files pose more of a problem for the Samsung 830 Series as the transfer rate dropped to 184.3MB/s. The drive was 6% slower than the OCZ Vertex 3 Max IOPS 240GB while it dominated the Crucial m4 256GB by a 32% margin.
The game copy evaluation which uses a mixture of small and large compressed and uncompressed files boosted the Samsung 830 Series 512GB figures. With a throughput of 226.4MB/s, it was 14% faster than the OCZ Vertex 3 Max IOPS 240GB and 21% faster than the Crucial m4 256GB.
